The ASA Minority Fellowship Program

The ASA Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) has supported doctoral candidates in Sociology since 1974. It celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013–14. For the 2015–16 MFP Fellowship award year, MFP is supported by the significant annual contributions of Sociologists for Women in Society, Alpha Kappa Delta, and the Midwest Sociological Society, along with the Association of Black Sociologists, the Southwestern Sociological Association, Pacific Sociological Association, Eastern Sociological Society, and numerous individual ASA members.

MFP applicants should have completed at least one full academic year in their PhD program in sociology. All MFP applicants must be members of an underrepresented racial/ethnic minority group in the United States (e.g., Black/African-Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians and Pacific Islanders, or American Indians/Alaska Natives). Applicants must also be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals of the U.S., or have been lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence. The application deadline is January 31; notifications are made by April 30. The Fellowship is awarded for 12 months. Tuition and fees are arranged with the home department.

MFP Fellows are selected by the MFP Advisory Panel, a rotating, appointed group of senior scholars in sociology appointed by ASA Council. Fellows can be involved in any area of sociological research.
